A few weeks ago, I decided to try a quit drastic change in my diet, as well as I embarked on my new journey as a Strength & Conditioning coach – and trying out my own 4 weeks program.
For those of you who read my blog, and know me through real life: classes, long lost friends in Denmark, new friends and aq. in Ireland: You all probably know, I’m pretty strong and could tear down the walls, but you also know, that I haven’t been fighter fit, since my last fight (which I think is 2 years ago!!!).
Two weeks into my strength program (which I had to modify the past 3 sessions, due to a broken finger) and into my new diet, I’m starting to see peeps of abs. Which of course makes everything better.
I’m also starting to feel a lot stronger, especially in the Snatch, where I reckon, I’ll be upping about 10kg, once the finger is healed, and I got a strong grip again.
In the mirror, I see my arms and shoulders starting to stand out, and it’s a really delight to not only know, that I’m strong, but also to start seeing it. My new diet is btw. very simple: No Wheat or gluten products.
I’ve had a few gluten-free bread slices in between, chocolate chip cookies ditto, rice cakes, cheeses & gluten-free sausages, but otherwise everything is non-processed foods. I still do dairy – enjoying my yogurt in the morning and having lots of milk in the coffee. So I’m not joining the paleo movement, just trying to clean out a bit and see where this takes my body.
4 weeks is set off for the Strength & Conditioning program and so far, that’s also my time limit for my diet, however, I could easily see it continue. I don’t miss wheat that much, except for perhaps the occasionally danish 😉
